Norman Lear, titan of television, is celebrating his 100th birthday Wednesday. Born in 1922, it would be five years before TV was invented and many more before it was marketed commercially to consumers. And it was through this new medium that Lear would change the way we viewed the world.

Throughout his career Lear has developed more than 100 shows, many of which were groundbreaking then and continue to be relevant now like The Jeffersons, Good Times, One Day at a Time, Sanford and Son, All in the Family and Maude, among many others.

They include systemic racism, feminism, abortion, classicism, homosexuality, and poverty.

So it’s no surprise that many of the lives he’s touched along the way—famous and otherwise—are sharing their memories and best wishes via social media on Lear’s milestone birthday.
